What font does the Washington Post use?

Use. Miller and its derivatives are often used in newspapers, magazines, and other forms of media all around the world. Miller Daily appears in The Washington Post as body text, while Miller Banner appears in Glamour magazine.

The Washington Post adopted the modern version of Miller's fonts in 1971. Before then, they used another foundry's version called Century Schoolbook. While both versions are similar in some ways, especially compared to other common foundries such as Adobe or Helvetica, there are enough differences that they cannot be considered variants or upgrades of each other.

Century Schoolbook was based on a typeface designed by J. C. Hedley for Columbia University in 1939. Like many other foundries at the time, Hedley's office hired Linotype employee Everett M. True to revise and expand upon this initial design. In 1951, Linotype released Schoolbook as part of their Master Series of educational fonts. It was very popular with schools around the world and remained in production until 1971 when The Washington Post switched over to the modern version of Miller's Fonts.

In terms of design philosophy, Miller's and Hedley's types were quite different.

What font do newspapers use for headlines?

Newspaper typefaces are designed to be legible for usage in publications. Times New Roman, which was employed by the British daily "The Times," is the most well-known newspaper headline typeface. Franklin Gothic and Helvetica are the most often used fonts for smaller text. For larger text, a variety of typefaces can be used; these include Impact, Caslon, Garamond, and Baskerville.

Newspapers use different typefaces for their front page and inside pages. The front page has greater emphasis on visual appeal and typically uses a more decorative typeface. Inside pages use more utilitarian typefaces that are easier to read.

In addition to typography, other factors may influence newspaper headline design including space limitations and the need for clarity and attention-getting power.

Typefaces are also important for television news reports. In general, television news stories use the same typefaces that are popular with newspapers. Headlines are one exception; because they appear in much smaller sizes, they often use typesetting techniques unique to the medium.

Television news stories are usually followed by editorial comments called "anchors." These are brief commentaries that explain or analyze what happened during the story.

News programs may also include interviews with experts or others who have information about the topic being reported. These individuals are called "contributors."
